$24 brownies

I have a brownie recipe. ?It was formerly a secret brownie recipe, but I’m feeling generous and I’m going to share with you. ?This recipe is from a congregation member of our home church in Olympia, WA. ?I don’t make them very often because they aren’t the healthiest things in the world, but yeah, they’re brownies… they aren’t exactly supposed to be healthy.

They will only cost $24 if you make them the way I did the other day… with Sweet Hope caramels. ?It’s what I had in the house.

Caramel Brownies

1 boxed chocolate cake mix of your choice
1 small can evaporated milk
1 14oz bag caramels (or 2 boxes of plain Sweet Hope caramels)
3/4 c. butter or margarine, melted
1 bag chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the cake mix, 1/3c. evaporated milk and melted butter in a bowl. The mixture will be rather thick. Grease the bottom of a 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish. Put 1/2 of the batter in the pan. Cook 6 minutes. While the brownies are cooking combine the caramels and 1/3c. evaporated milk in a sauce pan and cook on med-low until the caramels are melted. If you are using Sweet Hope caramels use just a heavy splash of milk instead of a full 1/3c. Once the brownies are cooked let them sit for 2 minutes. Then pour on the caramel sauce and then sprinkle on the bag of chocolate chips (I usually use less than the whole bag). Drop the rest of the brownie batter on in chunks and cook 18 minutes more (NO MORE THAN THAT). Take them out and slobber a little. You can thank me later.

    brownies are mine too. There were no leftovers after the party. I’m sad.

  3. Sound YUM! But I am lazy…and am happy enough with the boxed ones so I will probably never make these. My ass thanks me for that.
